    Not if you're careful. I put a figure out for two days and the difference was remarkable. I know most people think it's a joke, but it's really not. It's a better solution than a chemical bath.

    Pop it in direct sunlight for a day or two outside - the sun should be able to bleach the plastic back to whiteness, I've used the technique on a few Transformers I own. Lovely set of mechs by the way

    That's a lovely display, I really ought to invest in better stands for my Valks too. I try not to clutter mine, but the Transformer Masterpiece shelves are about as full as they can be >< The Kronos is a gorgeous Battroid, the colour scheme gives it a bit of a Patlabor look, especially those legs. Go for it

    Thanks Kronos was my first ever Valk, I happened to be in Japan when it came out and I fell in love with it. Slippery slope from there!

    I only have two 31's, Mirage and Hayate. I only really double up with the Hi Metal R's - I have 3 of the Messer VF1J Anniversary valks (picked one up for £25 at Nakano!), 3 of the VF2SS, and I suppose if you take into account all the recolours, 6 VF1's (Max, Miria, the Messer colours and a Fokker version). Much as I love the larger Valks, the HMR figures are like mini-masterpieces, just a fantastic size for display. It's nice to have these on display in my office though

    That's a terrific graphic! Scares me to think I only have 5 of those releases, but so many multiples! I'm tempted by the Nexx Gilbert VF-2SS even though I have 2 of the Sylvie type. They really nailed the sculpt though... I think I'll be hunting HMR on my next trip to Japan...

    I agree, I always loved the design, probably because it was my first exposure to Macross proper. I have two on my desk at work keeping guard! That said, HMR gave me new respect for the VF1, it's a timeless design. All in I'm a lot poorer (but happier) thanks to HMR!

    Still loving my Max and Milia combo. I could buy at this scale for everything in all honesty.

    I managed to pick up the HMR Max variant for 6,000Yen at Mandarake in Feb, but best deal I found was 4,000 Yen for the Messer 35th VF1. Already had 2, but couldn't leave it alone for that price. As for the feet, no problems as yet.

    I picked up another Messer 1S at Nakano last month for 4,000 yen. I like the deco so for that price, it was rude NOT to. Half what I paid when it came out as I recall. I now have the Max variant (6,000 Yen, Mandarake) and Myria on the way (11,000). It really pays to shop around in Japan! I am getting quite addicted to this toy though, I may need help.
  11. I've just returned from Japan, so lots of new toys. Picked up a nice second-hand Max VF-1 HMR for 6,000 Yen - very happy! Also came back to a statue I've been hunting for ages
  12. My original Chogokin VF25 suffered the same fate, but the Renewal has survived the ravages of time. It is a nasty business given the cost of these things, but in a world of white Valks we're especially vulnerable ;_;

    Finally got my second 2SS from Yes Asia - no customs this time though so the price worked out about the same as HLJ. Sadly they aren't anywhere near as fast :/ Still, very pleased to have it, must dig out my old model kit version for a proper family get together!

    Yeah sorry, I always think of it as Valkyrie, Gerwalk, Battroid. So yes, in your terms, fighter (or plane) mode
